Here they go......to Project Linus!

Here are three more for Project Linus----newly quilted and bound! I tried out a new pattern called Cornerpost--It is from an old Quiltmaker magazine---I had cut it out, so I can't even tell you which one---sorry!!!! I called it Saturday at the Park--the toile shows boys and girls at play, so I figured they were at the park!!! It makes a smaller quilt, even when I put borders on it!

The next one is called Rainbow Airplanes and is a Disappearing Nine-Patch. You make a Nine-Patch and then cut it in hal, turn the pieces on the right top and bottom left one-half turn and sew them back together and there you have it--it makes a different look.

The last one is a Yellow Brick Road, which I called Lavender and Violets, which is still my favorite---I never get tired of that pattern because no matter what I use it all tends to turn out differently. Making the pattern never gets old either--funny how that is!

Going to a Sit and Sew tomorrow and that's what I plan to work on---a Yellow Brick Road--it's easy to do and visit at the same time---doesn't require a whole lot of concentration, except in one spt where I seem to mess up everytime---can't figure out why that is---you're supposed to cut four pieces and I always end up cutting three unless I am paying attention---so I starred that part and really try to mind my p's and q's in that part!!!!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
